Commercialism in the Olympics

(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 It is often said that the modern Olympics is too commercialized but I believe that there is nothing wrong with it as long as the original purpose of the Olympics is maintained.
 In this economic recession, it is imperative to improve the world economy and the Olympics is a great opportunity for it. Especially for the host country, the Olympics can help facilitate the tourism and ameliorate the infrastructure because many people, such as athletes, spectators, news reporters, etc, come to the country. Since the more countries prosper the better for the world, there is nothing wrong with these as long as the original purpose of the Olympics is maintained.
 However, if commercialism takes precedence over the original purpose of the Olympics, it is a big problem. The original purpose of the Olympics is enhancement of international relationships and facilitation of the sports through the fair game without any prejudice. Therefore, when commercialism encroaches on these basic principles, it is natural to believe that the Olympics are too commercialized.
 In conclusion, for the aforementioned reasons, I believe that there is nothing wrong with commercialism in the Olympics as long as the original purpose is maintained.

オリンピック商業化です。
オリンピックの本来の目的を損なわない限り、商業化自体は悪いことではないという感じで書いてみました。
